Really nice photos, I especially liked the one with the sculpture, in Reykjavik.

I don't know about your theory that longer focal length means 'flatter' images.  Spatial distortions vary as a zoom lens' focal length varies, but it can be 'unflat' at any length...
The longer the focal length of the lens, the less the view angle changes between shots. If you shoot with a 50% overlap, you will have to rotate the camera on the tripod a lot more between shots at 28mm than you will at 85mm. So images shot at 85mm align better than ones shot at 28 mm if you aren't using any perspective correction utilities like PanoTools. Alignment is never perfect, and any lens distortion further compounds the problem.
